Coeliac Disease

Coeliac disease is an autoimmune condition where the immune system negatively reacts to the protein gluten causing damage to the small intestine. Gluten is found in foods containing wheat, rye, oats and barley. Dietitians can assist patients to safely remove gluten from the diet while maintaining a balanced diet and optimal nutritional status. Dietitians help with symptom management and slowing progression of small intestine damage.
